It is funny that you mention that because I JUST had a conversation w/my sister (who lives in VA) and her 2 1/2 year old went thru a period of time that she did the exact same thing...my sister said she would hear her say things before she went to sleep like she was "running down" her whole day...things like, "ok, lets put on clothes", "watch Barney now", "mommy walk dogs", "I love nana and pop pop". My sister said the same thing, it was almost disconcerting.
Since Paige is developmentally delayed (or maybe just because she would have done this later on anyway), I bet she's doing the same thing, but in her sleep...she's probably dreaming about what her day entailed...she says "Nooooooo, Julian", ALOT!!
: I'm not sure about dreaming, but I do know that what your daughter is doing is not unheard of. I have a friend whose daughter did this same thing. She basically just runs through her entire day as she's drifting off to sleep. It's almost a little disconcerting.
